"Gang Banged With A Headache, And Live" is a recently-unsurfaced "authorized bootleg" from math rock pioneers Don Caballero. Recorded in 2003 at a single show in Chicago, "Gang Banged" captures Don Cab's unrivaled musicianship in gritty, brash fashion.

Featuring the lineup of Gene Doyle, Jeff Ellsworth, Jason Jouver, and (of course) Damon Che, the band performs material spanning from 1993's "For Respect" (Touch & Go) to songs that would end up on 2006's "World Class Listening Problem" (Relapse Records). While classics like "Fire Back About Your New Baby's Sex" and "Delivering The Groceries at 138 Beats Per Minute" are performed true to their recordings, the band also explores medley territory at times, weaving together songs like "Let's Face It Pal, You Didn't Need That Eye Surgery" and "You Haven't Lived Afro Pop" into the aptly named "Let's Face It Pal, You Haven't Lived Afro Pop".

"Gang Banged" includes a decade's worth of quintessential Don Cab material, rendered one fateful night in Chicago. But let's be clear: this is not a premeditated live recording nor a "best of" album. This is a found document which affirms our humble opinion that Don Cab is simply one of the best bands that has ever existed.

"Gang Banged With A Headache, And Live, is an ‘authorized bootleg” from Math/Instrumental Rock dynamos, Don Caballaro. This is one of those warts and all style recordings, capturing one show in Chicago from 2003, featuring a later incarnation of the band, Gene Doyle, Jeff Ellsworth, Jason Jouver, and Damon Che. There is an intensity captured on this album that one doesn’t find every day, this was an absolutely brutal live band, and Che was at the center of it all, driving the band from the drum stool."
